Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Legal Immigration

                The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday is the simple fact that there are approximately 4 million people attempting to legally become United States citizens.  Here is an interesting story about an Irish citizen who claims it is his “life-long dream” to become an American.  He calls himself “Freedom’s Disciple,” and his “face lights up when he speaks about the country he hopes to one day call home.”  He visited the Statue of Liberty recently “and shared his thoughts on what it was like to grow up in a socialist country where `there are no eternal God-given rights, no belief in the individual and the answer to every problem is more government.’”  I am impressed by his words and wish him well in his efforts.  Be sure to watch the video and learn more about him at this site.
